Reviewer Notes

  • This interactive stimulus begins with a discussion of the work of victim advocates and moves into the discussion of the nomination of a new supreme court justice and presidential/vice presidential nominees for the 2020 election.
  • This video is good practice for transliteration. The interpreter will be challenged to match very English like signing and will be challenged with processing time as both consumers hesitate while speaking which forces the interpreter to adjust their lag. This will also challenge the interpreter to avoid “fillers” since there is ample silence at times.

About this Video

The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
